Re: “For the mentally ill behind bars in Montana, life goes from bad to worse

I have a master's degree in psychology and a bachelor degree in biology. Sometimes it takes years to correctly identify a diagnosis and to prescribe the right medications that do not aggravate the condition. What amazes me is that this prison psychiatrist set this young man up for failure by not keeping him on medications that were working for him. You do not help the mentally ill by torturing them further! It is inhumane to do so. I have watched my own grandson be tortured because of the ignorance of the current judicial system in Great Falls, Montana. There are other professionals who do acknowledge this is wrong. Others do not care to intervene. Injustice currently happened to my grandson when he was doing so well and is not guilty of the charges. There was a partial judge on his case that I asked to be recused long ago. This young man was attending his Christian church, had finally talked someone into giving him a chance and hiring him, and was taking care of his family. he had already been held i isolation for 6 months before this judge's latest ruling. A plea bargain had already been reached by the attorney including the prosecuting attorney, and the psychiatrist..and yet the judge sentenced him to 15 years for ridiculous charges that are not even the truth. I intend to fight this to the end and also write the governor and editors of other newspapers before my grandson manages to commit suicide in their corrupt system of justice.
